Stoli’s response to grey goose comes up short. A bit too much cloying sweetness on the nose and first taste for me. Not worth the price for sure. — a month ago
I hate to say it, but this stuff really is a higher class of vodka. No off, medicinal notes. No cloying artificial sweetness. It just tastes like the cleanest, purest spring water was made magically alcoholic. — 2 months ago
Small local producer. Rosé wines from Merlot aren’t typical here in the PNW. Dusky orange, excellent clarity. Label notes it was aged on lees, with aromas of “strawberries, peaches and melons” with “flavors of cherries, raspberries, strawberries and black pepper” For me, strawberry seed and melon aromas with flavors of cola and black pepper, surprise. Almost dry, rounded mouthfeel, defined skin astringency on finish, not excessive but present alongside some mineral and leesy character. Worth seeking out — 18 days ago
Notes of dark fruit, without being sweet. Rich and dusky. — 4 months ago
Very nice, subdued tannins, delicate fruit. Went well with goose, and potato pancakes. — a month ago
Label trying a little bit too hard to scream high class. Dusky and dark in the glass. Aroma is mulberry and black cherry. Flavors are chewy, balanced and intriguing. Not exactly the tobacco leaves, black currants, and toasted barrels one expects of warm climate Cabs. This has more herbs, licorice and earthy flavors. It’s a great deal. Very good vino in an elegant Euro table wine style. — 2 months ago
Garnet verging on brick.
I smell very earthy aromas; horse farm, camp fire and soot.
A real stranger on the pallete. First I'm hit with a red fruit, not cherry or any of the common fruit notes- something more natural and tart, not as tart as a cranberry but I'm thinking of mixed dried currants with fresh goose berries and the Sirah comes through with a touch of black pepper and there is just a touch of effervescence from this natural creation.
